The forested area, massaged by monstrous glaciers many millennium ago, contains wake-up-call hill climbs of 200-300 feet and enough undulating terrain to challenge even those granite-legged mountain runners. Overall, the soft, forgiving course is primarily single-track peppered with slightly wider, equestrian sections. View your race specific course guide here: https://bit.ly/2GDZNQu
